Is the Paleolithic Diet the Optimal Diet for the 21st Century World?
Kirk Hamilton interviews Dr. Loren Cordain on the pros and cons of the Paleo Diet (hunter-gatherer diet) and its potential benefit on chronic disease prevention and reversal, and its practicality in the modern world. Points of discussion are the health aspects of grains (pro & con), the acid load of foods, in particular meats and grains, and what is more beneficial for public health - emulating the diets of hunter gatherer populations or long-living Blue Zone populations. Dr Cordain received his Ph.D. in Health & Physical Education from the University of Utah in 1981, and has been a Professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University since 1982. He is author of the best selling books The Paleo Diet, The Paleo Diet for Athletes and The Dietary Cure for Acne.
